.... all of which applies to the writings of HPB.  Why?  HPB presents
the Secret Doctrine as occult history and commentary, which she did, to
the best of her ability, carefully label.

Since then, other evidence and other sources have been found of which
she had no information - the Dead Sea Scrolls is one example, the Nag
Hammadi Library another.
